It was a pleasure to welcome Marcia Knorr to Goshen School. She presented an assembly called, "How the West Was Won" for the students and teachers. Through narration and song, she taught us how music played an important part in the history and development of our country. Using our imaginations we crossed the wild prairies, panned for gold, built a railroad, fought in the Civil War and even shared song and music from an old fashioned barn dance. The assembly was sponsored by ARTS, Inc. and the Salt Lake County Zoo Arts and the Parks.
A fun Family Math Night was held at our school. Students and parents spent time in classes learning and using the new online math programs that are now available. There were Math Baskets given away in drawings for each grade level and refreshments were provided. If you would like to use the math resources, just click on the Math Resources box on the Goshen School website. www.goshen.nebo.edu
Ballet West performed for the students and teachers at Goshen School. During the assembly the performers invited some of the students to come on stage to try leaps and turns and other ballet moves. At the end they performed a shortened version of the Nutcracker. This fun assembly is a part of the POPS Program (Professional Organizations Performing in Schools). This assembly was funded by the State Legislature.
Goshen’s Annual Food Drive was a great success. Student Council members filled 10 boxes of donated food items that were delivered to families in our area. Thank you for your participation!
Our Kindergarteners are so excited! They won the annual Penny Wars! This year our Penny Wars raised $915.91. The funds were used to help families in our area. Thank you for participating!
Excitement filled the air at the Goshen School Winter Reading Reward Carnival. Each student received reading reward tickets for their reading minutes from the beginning of the school year. Students were then able to spend their tickets on reading books, games and raffles. This was such a wonderful way to reward our students. One student shared with others that this was her funnest day ever! Thank you to our Principal Mrs. DeGraffenried and our support staff for making this event such a success!
